 810 Grant McConachie Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron

810 Grant McConachie Squadron has molded hundreds of youth over the last 49 years into leaders of the future.

Cadets will explore aviation, survival, instruction, leadership, marksmanship and many other skills throughout their time with the cadet program.


COVID-19

810 Squadron Training will begin in October 2020. We are striving to provide a safe training environment which will include a mixture of virtual and in-person training under guidance and public health measures for group activities.

Parent fundraising will still be important to ensure the 810 can return when it is deemed safe to do so, but Bingo and Casino dates may be impacted. Please ensure you watch your email for details.

Please follow provincial health orders and maintain your social distance. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

A Note From Supply

For virtual training, cadets are asked to wear their I Am 810 Tshirt(if you have one). For those who do not have this shirt, a navy blue tshirt or nice shirt is recommended. 
 
You do not need to do anything, supply staff will find you when it is time to be measured.
The Cadet Dress Regulations outlines the standards to meet with wearing the uniform. How to lace boots, tie a tie, sew badges, how to wear your hair, etc. See: Cadet Dress Regulations

Uniform Care

Do not cut pant legs, they must be hemmed only.  

Do not glue badges onto the tunics, they must be sewn only.

Washing - your cadet uniform washes very well and looks better the more it is washed.  It is expected that all parts of your uniform are washed regularly and you should be washing your short sleeve shirt every week.
